, maria, i am here to talk about the carpenters agreement with john o'connell. we recently signed an mou stating that the carpenter's union will hire students graduating from the john o'connell program. i am also a graduate of john o'connell and it's been a great career for me. i think it's a great thing for the relationship we have formed with the school district. we met with october and signed the agreement in which five graduating students from john o'connell will come into direct entry into the carpenter's program and two of them will be females, which is great. and we're very excited about going forward with this. paula will be getting together with the john o'connell school and providing the curriculum in which the students graduating have direct entry into the carpenter's join. i also want to say that we'll be having a college and career awareness day next thursday, december 19th. so that is the late update with the carpenters thank you. >> where will that take place? >> ida b. wells high school next thursday. >> thank you so much. >> thank you so much, have a great day. >> an

that has been impactful. i met rear admiral john banoff in 89 after the earthquake. he was still with the navy. helped us tremendously with a aircraft carrier and the work in recovery, and in 1992 mayor jordan sought to seek his leadership and have him head up what is today our dem but at that time it was the office of emergency services so for five years i got to work with admiral bit off and lead the effort at oes but at the time that we really required some strong leadership because it was shortly after the 101 california shootings that we realized very clearly different agencies within the city had to speak more deliberately with each other, had to have systems and communications and culture built around much more collaboration, particularly with communication. well, that spawned this particular building, and its housing of not only the emergency management, but its physical location of our 911 emergency dispatch system which is right upstairs, and that was started on and under the leadership of admiral bit dlf off. it was concluded very well. he then went on to what i say wa

, i have asked our deputy director for architectural access, john paul scott to give us a briefing on some of the big projects that he submitted for our capital planning budget. now i wanted to tell you about a couple special probings that our office worked on recently. we just finish a project to develop accessibility guidelines for park lifts. -- parklet. if you haven't seen a parklet, you should walk or drive down valencia street or hayes valley, because those are the biggest concentrations that we find parklets. parklets are built out into the street. they are an expansion of usable public space next to the sidewalk and they are a good place to sit and talk and maybe have a cup of coffee. by developing accessibility guidelines, we're ensuring that these spaces are also going to be accessible to people with disabilities. that there will be turning circle radius. that there will be accessible counters and seating built into the design and also that they provide the right kind of warnings for those who are blind or low-vision to make sure they don't actually step off a parklet and

okay? >> okay. >> thank you. mr. kwong. >> good evening commissioners john kwong from the department of public works. there appears to be a continual different interpretations from the various parties related to the department's process. let's first go to the notification. the notification as stated by the various partis is correct about what is a truck. it's located -- the notification is to be 300' radius from the mid-point of the block or the length of block, whichever is greater. that is how the legislation is written up. when it's a food cart as such at a specific property address it's 300' from that throt.lot. it's relates to the evaluation of like foods, the department tries its best to make sure it's been 300'. we make that determination as it relates to like foods. now to suggest that we use a 300' radius, it would be as the bird flies, which would not be appropriate. previously under the previous legislation that has been since suspended which came from the san francisco police department, the police department requires 600' distance, which the police department actually uses
